OK so I probably have to explain the title.. I went to see the surgeon today and I was nervous that he was going to say NO (Nein).. but instead he gave me .25cc to bring me up to NINE cc's.
Previously I was at 8.75 cc, and I have to say.. this must be my sweet spot.
Before I was like a nomad.. going from snack to snack in between meals.. always feeling like I needed something (not quite like a crack addict, although I have never been a crack addict).
But honestly, I got my fill and had an EAS shake in my car, kinda thinking I would need to sip sip sip.. about halfway through my drink I felt a little gurgle.. and then quite content.
I just had a 6 oz yogurt and quite content.
I only lost a pound.. I am a slow loser.. and I attribute part of the weight offset because I was fully garbed in fall/winter attire.. it's chilly here!! so maybe if I stretch it maybe I did lose 2 lbs (whatever) I didn't gain and that is all I care about. I don't go back until Dec. 28th.
I like the idea that I don't have that food monkey on my back, feed me, feed me or that nagging feeling of wanting a banana.. I feel pretty good about this fill.. we will see.
We also discussed overfills, and the doc spoke of the dangers of dehydration (yes I know I read alot of blogs on this). The guy is pretty decent, he really would like me to get into an exercise routine (yada yada yada).. yes I know doc, here take my knees and you go exercise.. then he encouraged me to do water aerobics.. .. OK.. I will look into that.. honestly, if I am having a hard time getting dry aerobics in, what makes him think I will have time for wet aerobics.. freakin, drying my hair and bringing a towel.. that just ain't going to happen.. I am just going to have to be happy with my jiggly fat ass the way it is..
OK, deep breathe...
On the hubs front, the lovely office screwed up the blood sample and they were not able to get results..yeah thanks for making me have diarrhea for two days straight from my nerves..
OK what else.. oh.. it FINALLY stopped raining.. I mean really how much freakin rain could a tropical storm bring in 24hours. And do you think I remembered to wear my Wellies? No, I sloshed around in sandals.. ugh!
OK, that's about it for now.. hopefully I will have some good pics from the 5K.. and a big bottle of ALEVE (by the way, the doc told me NOT to take Aleve because it thins out the lining of the stomach and could cause band erosion).. lovely!
